Although there was never really a doubt in anyone's mind, we were all pleased with Furry Friends on Tuesday. Part of the excitement was the sheer variety of animals at hand--guinea pigs, a Chinese silky chicken, a cat, a dog, a duck, an albino skunk, a chinchilla, even an alpaca! Residents spent an hour and a half stroking different textures of fur and feathers, holding the different animals that they don't always get a chance to see.
By the time the pet therapist left, everyone was full of smiles and relaxed.
Many thanks to the family who anonymously donated the funds to make this event possible.
